Ah, that was odd :-)

That already works, if your synth eth0 was ethertap tap0. I saw in
test_ping output:

DHCP server id: 10.1.1.1 
                ^^^^^^^^

it is from that example (/etc/netfork/interfacse)

my IP: 10.1.1.20
       ^^^^^^^^^

from my pool (10.1.1.20 ... 10.1.1.30)

etc.

and test pinged server 10.1.1.1 (tap0) successfully. Now set all things
correctly (use more smart dhcpd.conf), use desired IP addresses for
tapN. etc.
